Specifically, CN seeks to extend its waiver for 81 carbody style locomotives (BCOL 4601–4626 and CN 2400–2454) that are not equipped with a brake valve adjacent to each end exit door. CN also requests relief from a condition of the original waiver which required such locomotives to be captive to CN’s system while operated in the United States. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–1999–5756. CN explains that all locomotives covered under its request are equipped with a rear walkway from which the engineer may be directed during a reverse movement. CN further states it has been complying with the existing conditions of the waiver and is not aware of any operational problems with these locomotives while in service in the United States. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
